Clinton associates step away from BLM on eve of disclosure 

Posted 40 days ago


A pair of Clinton family allies have left the board of Black Lives Matter just days after its co-founder Patrisse Cullors admitted to lying about not using the group's $6million mansion for fun.

Cullors, 38, told the Associated Press Monday that she used the opulent seven-bed Studio City compound - purchased in cash by BLM in October 2020 - for a party to celebrate Joe Biden's inauguration, and another for her son's birthday.

And now it has been revealed that Minyon Moore and Marc Elias, two close allies of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, have stepped down from the board of the national organization, according to the Washington Examiner.

Both were only confirmed as being on Black Lives Matter's board on February, sparking speculation as to the reason behind their sudden departures.

No reason has been given, but BLM was plunged into yet another scandal this week after its co-founder Patrisse Cullors admitted lying about how she'd used a $6 million mansion bought with donor cash.

Moore, who worked under President Bill Clinton and was a member of Hilary Clinton's inner circle for her two failed presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016, was announced as a board member in February.

The same month, Elias's legal firm Elias Law was named as having taken over BLM's books and finances.

There was some controversy over the Moore appointment, as she had worked on President Joe Biden's transition team and served as a 'nomination advisor for engagement' to Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Meanwhile, Elias - general counsel on Clinton's losing 2016 campaign - was revealed that same month to have taken over the organization's books and finances on behalf of his law firm.

However, on BLM's latest registration filings submitted to Florida and Oklahoma on April 28, Moore and Elias are nowhere to be found.

Black Lives Matter, Moore and Elias Law Firm have all either declined or not responded to requests for comment.

The first instance of Cullors holding extracurricular activities at the mansion saw her hold a party to toast Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's inauguration as president and vice president in January 2021.

Then, in March the same year, she commandeered the luxury property - whose purchase has sparked fury among other racial justice campaigners - for her school-aged son's birthday party.
